Editorial Today's confirmation that Apple is going x86 makes today a historic day in the industry. It may mean that Microsoft might see a few percent decline of their market share the next few years, but what about Linux? If Linux were to lose an equal amount of share it would alter its spread to the desktop, a spread that has been very positive so far.

Linux's Worst Enemy is Linux
by Ranty on Tue 7th Jun 2005 18:13 UTC

Linuxites spend way too much time on Linux, and not enough on APPLICATIONS. Major players must come over to Linux or Linux reamins a cool hobby and not a major OS contender. This means applications for the arts, music and video mainly, because Linux is already okay for minor processing, browsing, writing, etc.

Apple? Eff Apple, and Jobs, and their "special hardware". That company is every bit the monopoly Microsoft is, just smaller. Waiting, waiting, waiting for the "Mac version" of some piece of software to come out, often a yer after the Windows version. I won't buy into it. I detest Bill Gates and MS, but will stick with the "devil I know", until Linux gets its act together. There is no reason Linux/BSD can't evolve into something amazing, in the same way Mac OS did using the same foundations.
